Follow these practical tips to get the most out of your vacation.

1. TRY THE LOCAL FOOD.


For a tasty meal that’s easy on the wallet, visit one of Costa Rica’s countless sodas –
small, mom and pop restaurants that serve hearty portions – and order a casado.
Translated as “married man’s meal,” a $5 casado will delight your taste buds with your
choice of meat (chicken, fish, pork or beef ), rice, beans, salad and plantains. And if
you’re lucky, your meal will also include a serving of savory picadillo, a hash of
perfectly seasoned potatoes or squash. For dessert, look for tres leches – a moist
vanilla cake made with three milks. Another great option is the local version of a
snow-cone, known as a granizado.

2. DON’T PACK TOO MUCH.


Take our advice and pack light for your Costa Rica vacation. We understand that it’s
easy to get carried away with your clothing and camera possibilities, but keep in mind
that regional airlines impose strict weight limits (usually a maximum of 25 pounds per
person on Nature Air and Sansa) when traveling within the country. Many hotels and
resorts provide onsite laundry service for a small charge, and if you’re staying on the
beach, lightweight, quick-dry clothes are highly recommended. Remember that you
can always pick up lost or forgotten items in Costa Rica, at one of the many shopping
malls or pharmacies.
